Ticket #1758 (reopened defect)
Disabling python support does not prevent entry into python directories during build
|Reported by:||brook||Owned by:||grass-dev@…|
The configure option --without-python is presumably supposed to disable all python support. However, the Makefiles are set to unconditionally enter the gui/wxpython and lib/python subdirectories. As a result, this option results in a failed build.
The solution is to conditionally include those directories in the list of subdirectories for make. Two patches against the 6.4.2 release that fix this are attached. This has been compile-checked on a NetBSD system both with and without the --without-python option.
Presumably this should be pulled up to the more recent versions as well.
